of the 20th sent -- century. and nothing would ever be the same again. as bill clinton and admiral mullen say at the back of my book on the dust jacket blurbs, the things that he did as a reformer will never be undone. and i'm not talking about whether they are bell bottoms or trousers or side burns, those things can be changed. but the way he reformed the social policies and made the navy response to the contemporary needs of society and what he did with respect to vis-a-vis the soviets during the period of the cold war and the strategic arms limitations and his role there. these are things that have left a mark in history, and an important one. and i try to deal with those in the book. what bud zumwalt did and what i was drawn to about his life is that he made the navy think about things that they ought to have been thinking about before he forced them to. and, indeed, he took on the charge and the charter of redoing the social contract of the navy. an institution that he loved. and he didn't want to destroy the navy, he didn't want to do anything except reform it and bring it in

, everyone has been president and others. what about bill clinton? nobody's brought his name up? >> well, bill clinton has been a winner for a while. but i think what he did for the president particularly in that dnc speech, which was just unbelievable, laying out the case, you know, saying that here are some of the attacks on this president. here's why they're completely unfounded and doing it in very simple language, it was really incredible both for his own legacy and image and, also, for hillary. and certainly for the president. >> i mean, when you look at how, '08, he was not a winner, and he came up very badly and lost a lot of support in the base. he had guys like me taking real shots at him. and this year, he really came only strong. i think he has to be considered a winner this year. >> yeah, and think about it. think about all of charlotte. by the time president clinton gave his fantastic speech, those folks were fired up and ready to go. they wanted to hear that message. >> and they made them hungry for more clinton. >> yeah, i could watch that speech every day, personally. >>

those things happened, the democratic party through bill clinton and others like him trying to change it, made the party more acceptable to the american people. republicans have not gotten there yet. it was a party as we saw in the election, a declining -- white share of the vote is the declining share of the electorate. their share is going up, but not enough to compensate. >> right. >> right now the sort of primal scream you hear for spending cuts isn't consummate with the american people. president obama just ran on a program of resisting some of the fundamental ways in which the republicans wanted to change medicare and raise taxes on people over $250,000. he won the election and people from the very red districts elected in the house simply have not adapted to that reality. >> let me go to jonathan chait and the primal scream and the election president obama won, but you wouldn't know this in washington. doesn't it feel sometimes like one side experienced maybe a different election? >> they did. for the house republicans, they don't have to worry about public opinion. the

fortunate enough to the higher incomes would go back to the tax rates that prevailed when bill clinton was president. why the other side is horrified by that is perplexing to me. because i look back at the clinton era -- i was here. that is a long time ago. i was here. i came through the senate with senator feinstein when bill clinton was president. he faced similar issues in that we had a deficit that was getting out of control, debt that was getting out of control. we needed to have growth. so he put forward a plan, a budget plan, that invested in our people, invested in the infrastructure, invested in education, and at the same time said we can find cuts in other areas and we can raise taxes on those who are doing very well. what happened with that fair and balanced approach? what happened, the greatest prosperity in modern history. 23 million jobs, no more deficit, we got to a balanced budget, and i remember saying to my husband, what is going to happen -- it will not be any more government bonds because we will be out of the debt situation. we saw it on the horizon. when george w. bus
